Hello, I need a replacement remote for my 1040 as I dont have the original. After a power outage, I had to reset my receiver, where the setup menu comes up everytime I power on the receiver which I need the remote for. I cannot use the receiver as I cannot get past the setup menu without the remote.
1. Is there a way to cancel the setup without the remote?
2. Is there any alternate remotes that can be used other than the OEM? They seem to be going for $50 online, I hate to spend that to setup the receiver 1 time. I dont use the remote for anything else.
3. Any software / iphone apps that can do setup without the remote?
Any other suggestions of how to get through setup?
I am considering just buying a new $225 Yamaha 4k receiver vs. buying a $50 remote. Thanks all.
